How the summitBI solution works.
The solution connects to your financial data system. After creating a connection, data cleaning and structuring are automated. Therefore, in just a click all the data is cleaned irrespective of the capacity. Dynamic reports about Gross Profit Margin, OPEX Ratio, Operating Profit Margin and Net Profit Margin in a given period of time are made which are later consolidated into the income statement.
Using data in your system, key financial profitability metrics are then calculated; Gross Profit Margin is computed basing on the revenue and the costs related to providing your services for instance transport costs, among others. This is then used to assess the financial health of your company using the gross margin which shows how much of the company’s revenue remains after deducting its costs related to providing given goods and services.
Operating expenses are then used to compute the OPEX ratio. This gives how much of a company’s revenue is spent on operating expenses and therefore measures its management efficiency. Gross profit less operating expenses gives the Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) which evaluates the operational performance
Depreciation, Amortization and interest expenses are then deducted from EBITDA which yields the Earnings Before Tax (EBT). EBT is then used to yield the net profit. This is done by deducting the taxes from EBT. Net Profit measures the concrete profit of a company after all the working costs are deducted off.
